Peace Slam CAPAZ in Florencia
Introducing the 5th edition of the Peace Slam by the CAPAZ Institute!
This time the event will take place in Florencia, Caquetá. If you are a student at Universidad de la Amazonia, you might be interested in joining the Peace Slam by presenting your research or project on peacebuilding in the region to the audience in an engaging and innovative manner.

Besides the Slam, we will be gathering at the Environmental Management for Peace Lab-Workshop, where you work on strengthening your knowledge and experiences on these topics alongside students, representatives from research institutions, local and regional leadership, and enhance your creative skills in the Slam practice.
The task of building peace in Colombia continues to be pertinent. The agreements signed in 2016 were a starting point to de-escalate violence and initiate processes of truth, justice, reparation, and non-repetition. In order to envision potential desired territories with enhanced living conditions for communities and their environment, the active participation of communities, social organisations, academic institutions, and governmental bodies is essential. By acknowledging existing knowledge and experiences, it becomes crucial to explore the potential contributions of environmental management in addressing the challenge of constructing peaceful territories.
During the lab-workshop, you will have the opportunity to strengthen your knowledge and experiences on these topics alongside students, representatives from research institutions, local and regional leadership, and enhance your creative skills in the Slam practice.
Do you know what a Peace Slam is? In just a few minutes, you can present your academic interest in environmental management for the construction of peaceful territories to the Slam audience, using all your creativity in oral, physical, and written expression. Join us at CCA Araracuara in Florencia for an evening of creative reflections, shared knowledge, and experiences!
